Calf implants are used to enhance the size or shape of a patient’s calves. Most patients elect calf implants for aesthetic reasons, but in some cases an individual might choose to undergo surgery in order to correct a deformity or condition that results from a disease or injury.
What does calf implant surgery involve?
Implant surgery begins with an incision being made around the circumference of the leg. The muscles and tissue layers closest to the surface are then separated from deeper tissues, allowing access to the fatty layer known as “the superficial fascia.” A pocket is then created through which implants can be inserted into your calves. The incisions are then closed with sutures, and compression bandages and/or stockings are applied.
What are the benefits of calf implants?
According to studies, calf implant surgery changes the shape and size of a patient’s calves. This typically results in an increase in self-confidence and happiness and can also be used as a way of enhancing one’s body image prior to further cosmetic procedures such as facelifts or breast implants. While these implants can also be used by some individuals to correct a deformity or condition that results from injury or disease, it is important to note that calf implants do not fix such issues. For example, while many people with polio suffer from atrophied calf muscles (causing legs to look “bicycle-like”), calf implant surgery cannot counteract this problem. Rather, those with atrophied calf muscles must receive corrective surgery in order to fix the underlying condition, and then an additional cosmetic procedure in order to enhance their calves.
